Tough as nails and quick as heck, Darrian Wright dominated on the day and was a big part of why…
Datyon High School Scouting Report
One thing about Dayton High School is the school can produce talented defensive linemen. The defensive tackles the school produced are often all City players but a little too short for D1 schools. In recent years they have produced two National recruits and Top 100 in the nation in A.J. Dugat who plays for Houston and Cody Green who plays for Nebraska. The tradition continues as we take a look at the 2011 Class and who has a chance to be division one. Class of 2011 Darrian Wright - defensive tackles who is committed to SMU. Wright is listed at 6'2 and weighs 275 pounds. For a defensive tackle he is strong and very quick, and most of all relentless. He can drop into coverage as well as rush the passer. Wright's versatility and ability to be an every down defensive lineman makes him valuable. What separates him from the pack is that he can offer a pass rush from the defensive tackle spot. Solid D1 prospect. Xavier Baldwin- plays wide receiver and safety. Baldwin is a playmaker on offense. In the second round of the playoffs he took a pass in the flats 91 yards for a touchdown and to open the floodgates in the game. Baldwin lacks size, but he has speed, quickness and instincts. He could play D1 in the right program but is more likely to end up in D2 Justin Booth- Committed to Rice. Great frame at 6'5 and weighing 260. Booth has long arms and moves smoothly on the pass rush. He gets a good push on run blocking and uses the leverage of his big body to win the blocks. He is a D1 player all the way. Class of 2012 Linebacker Jack Choate - Okay size at 6'0 180, he is good in coverage and can play sideline to sideline. He hustles on the field and gives it all. Unless he fills out more playing at the D1 level will be difficult. He could end up being a safety on the next level if he can prove it in camps. Wide Receiver/Corner Back, Gamal Fowler - Another deluxe playmaker on both sides of the ball, he can bust a 90 yard play or grab an interception. On offense he is fast and quick and makes some smart decision running the ball. On defense he has a good sense of where to be in coverage and has the hands to make an interception. Solid D1 player Class of 2013 Safety, Jamaud St. Andre - a bit undersized for safety, he might grow big enough to meet the height threshold D1 schools tend to have. He is a natural defensive back and finds himself in the middle of plays quite often. Still has learning to do but he is promising with the only drawback being his lack of size. Guard, Matt Oubre - good size at 6'2 and weighing 260. He needs to work on his skills, both pass blocking and run blocking and has not gotten the snaps to get ready for the next level but he will in the next couple of seasons. Could be a D1 with development.
